I captured this Ram while he was trying to herd his family away from me.  I think I had gotten a little too close for his comfort.  I’m not sure he was really giving me this look, but more just trying to move his family in another direction.  This look was just to the point so I thought I would share it with you today.  I finally just sat down in the open field with them and they eventually just started grazing back toward me.  It was amazing.  I was sometimes within 15 ft of these animals.  At one point these two younger rams started playing around and almost ran into me. One finally looked up and realized I was right there and veered away startled.  What an amazing time with these Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep!  I may have to make this an annual trip to Utah.

  • This really rocks Rick. Love the look on his face.

  • He looks like he is a zombie or something of that sort! What a great capture!

  • Good Lord, sir, what a great photo!

  • Great shot indeed. I wouldn’t want to get hooked on one of those horns!

  • Great Shot Rick! Don’t mess with those horns!
